How U-23 Eagles Rated Vs Congo

How U-23 Eagles Rated Vs Congo

By Izuchukwu Okosi

Daniel Emmanuel

The Nigerian keeper was largely untested in the game unlike his opposite number, Christoffer Mafoumbi. He proved he could deal with crosses. The keeper also has good reflexes and could not do much for the Congo goal. 5/10.

Stanley Amuzie

Zenith Ziva

The Sampdoria left back had a good game and was intelligent with his surging runs down the channels. He also tracked back on time. 6/10.

Atanda Sadiq

A very commanding performance in the game. Sadiq was a strong presence in the Eagles backline though he was given some hard times in the game. 5/10.

Segun Oduduwa

The understanding between Oduduwa and his central defensive partner, Erhun Obanor, was evident. At some point in the game he left his position but thankfully was covered by his partner. 6/10.

Erhun Obanor

The Abia Warriors defender who is also adept at left back had a game to remember. He was strong in the tackle and also won lots of aerial battles. 7/10.

Azubuike Okechukwu

The captain of the day for the U23 was a general in midfield for the Dream Team XI. He broke up many plays and recoiled possession for the team. 8/10.

Usman Mohammed

The midfielder retained the ball brilliantly and made key passes in the game. A great asset to the team. 6/10.

Godwin Saviour

The former Flying Eagles winger was a menace for the Congo defenders. He drew a lot of fouls in the game from the right flank especially in the first half. In the second half, Saviour drifted to the left but the former seemed where he was most dangerous. 8/10.

Ogenekharo Etebor

The Warri Wolves forward was a constant threat for the Congo defenders. If he wasn’t laying good passes for his teammates, he was unleashing shots from the edge of the box. 7/10.

Eta Daniel

The left footed forward was the team’s freekick and corner kick taker. His pace was also a great asset to the U23 side and constituted a problem for the opposition. Substituted in the second half. His cross led to Nigeria’s second goal. 7/10.

Junior Ajayi

The skilful striker scored Nigeria’s two goals in the game though was also guilty of wasting some glorious chances.
Ajayi’s trickery and good positioning were a handful but his finishing was the disappointing side of his game. 8/10.

Taiwo Awoniyi

The Flying Eagles cum U23 star striker replaced Junior Ajayi in the second half. Awoniyi was a bit withdrawn in the game but that could be down to the time he was introduced into the game, about 15 minutes left in the game. 5/10.

Musa Yahaya

Musa Yahaya was also introduced in the second half but had little impact to make in the team. Yahaya, like Awoniyi, could have fared better if he was brought from the bench earlier. Some of his passes were misplaced. 5/10.

Aminu Umar

The forward operated from the left wing when Samson Siasia introduced him in the game but had little time to also stamp his authority. His runs and physical presence were however encouraging. 5/10.

    A fairly good result. In the reverse fixture, the Dream Team should not be overtly defensive, but be balanced in play. Our opponents are beatable in Congo. BRAVO!

  • they really tries, but we need thier best
